THE Saipan Pacific Lions Club, the newest Lions Club on Saipan, was chartered on June 1, thanks mainly to the effort of Saipan Unity Lions Club president Elizabeth Escober-Mendiola.

The Saipan Pacific Lion Clubs has an initial membership of 22 and will soon elect its officers, Escober-Mendiola said.

Like other Lions all over the world, the members of the new club are willing to offer their time in serving  the community, she added.

The other Lions Clubs on Saipan are the Saipan Fil-American Lions Club, the Saipan Alliance Lions Club, the Saipan Natibu Lions Club, the Saipan Marianas Lions Club and the Saipan Unity Lions Club.

Saipan Unity Lions Club secretary Ruth Torrecampo said there are 540,000 Lions Clubs all over the world with 1.5 million members.

“We have more volunteers in more places than any other service organization in the world,” she added. “Since 1917, Lions Clubs have offered people the opportunity to give back to their communities and help those in need.”

 She said whenever Lions get together, problems get smaller and communities get better.

“That’s because we help where help is needed — in our own communities with unmatched integrity and energy,” she added.

The Saipan Pacific Lions Club members have the determination and willpower as well as the motivation to do their best in serving their fellow men and women, she said.

Torrecampo thanked all Lions District 204 and Region 2 officers who helped with the chartering of the Saipan Pacific Lions Club: district governor Fely Angel, district first vice governor-elect Saturnino Banting, Region 2 chairperson Annamae Adaza and Saipan Unity Lions Club president Elizabeth Escober-Mendiola.

On Saturday, the members of the new club joined other Lions in conducting a cleanup drive at Paupau Beach.

The Lions observed social-distancing rules during the event.
